In 16th century England, fashionable women copied pretty much whatever fashion was set by Queen Elizabeth.
They would try to mimic her naturally pale complexion by colouring their faces with white lead. Alabaster pencils were used on their veins, lips and eyebrows. A top layer of egg white paste was applied to hold the entire mix together.
A side effect of this was that women couldn’t go out in strong sunlight without the risk of a sort of make-up meringue baking on their cheeks.
Looking good and feeling great while avoiding cake-based mishaps is a doddle with today’s Big Deal.
